If you're a follower, there's nothing new here.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you are tech enthusiast and/or follow tech news moderately, you won't find anything new in this book. This book mostly covers very basic details of Elon's life, things that you can find in his Wikipedia page or simple Google searches. And similar details are also available in various YouTube videos. Hence I wouldn't recommend anyone to pay for this book. If you are getting it for free though, go for it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

"Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future" by Ashlee Vance.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin Theis?

There was no problem narration-wise. Hence I am not opposed to listening to another book narrated by Kevin Theis.

Any additional comments?

I received this audiobook for free from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

A small peek into Elon's success..

This short book is a combination of what he's accomplished, what he's trying to accomplish, and what's happened in his personal life. I was hoping for more detailed information on how he made his Billions. The most interesting thing about this book to me was the work he's doing with environmentally safe transportation.

For someone seeking basic knowledge about Elon this is a good place to start. For those wanting an inside look into the mind of a money making genius you won't get it here. I requested this free review copy and have decided to voluntarily leave this review.
